Contrary to recent claims that the kidnapped 200 Chibok girls may have been slaughtered in Bama by the Boko Haram sect, the Federal Government says there is still hope on their return.
The Coordinator of National Information Centre (NIC), Mr Mike Omeri, stated this on Wednesday during a security briefing in Abuja.
Omeri maintained that all hope was not lost yet on rescuing the girls alive.
He urged Nigerians to be hopeful as recovery of the captured towns and villages by Boko Haram were still ongoing by the Nigerian Troops, urging people to disregard speculations.
According to him, “The search for Chibok girls continues and that is why even with capture of Bama and the rest, security and military have never relent, and until it is concluded, we cannot begins to believe speculation.
“I think the one year anniversary is next week, and we hope to give a comprehensive report on what we know so far, and how far the searching has gone.
“So, the assurance I will give you, is that everywhere is being combed and whatever element we found will be revealed to appropriate authority and nobody is going to keep anything secret.”
